Taylor announced that his debut solo album, CMFT, will be released on October 2, and shared the project's first two singles, "Black Eyes Blue" and "CMFT Must Be Stopped" which features Tech N9ne and Kid Bookie.
Corey also shared the "CMFT Must Be Stopped" music video, directed by DJay Brawner and features cameos from a few friends including Marilyn Manson, Lars Ulrich, Rob Halford, Chris Jericho, ZillaKami and more.
